Belly Bombz’s Fiery Chicken Wings, Loaded Fries, and Korean Barbecue Sliders Exit Vegas

And a new Italian spot is reportedly taking its place on Silverado Ranch

Southern California import and Korean-style chicken joint Belly Bombz has just closed its only brick-and-mortar outpost in Las Vegas.

The fast-casual eatery popular for its crisp and spicy chicken wings (slathered in a number of sauces), Korean barbecue sliders, and “bomb dust fries” tossed in smokey barbecue dry rub seasoning, announced on social media last week that its Silverado Ranch Village retail center location would be closing Sunday, October 24.

“It is with a sad heart to announce that this week will be Belly Bombz’s last week in Las Vegas. We have received so much love and support ever since our Great American Foodie Fest days but the time has come for us to let this store go,” the restaurant posted to Instagram and Facebook.

After attending a number of Las Vegas festivals with its food truck, Belly Bombz opened a standalone spot at the intersection of Silverado Ranch Boulevard and Bermuda Road in 2019. At the time, owner Albert Shim had locations in Artesia and Whittier, California, and then later also opened one in the Los Angeles suburb of Glendora. These outlets remain in operation.

Belly Bombz says an unnamed “Italian concept” will take over its Las Vegas space.

However, this is unlikely to be the last the entertainment capital of the world sees of Belly Bombz; the Korean-inspired restaurant says it hopes to roll back into town, “from time to time,” on board its food truck.
